Four Central Park Media Titles Rescued

Well, the first four of Central Park Media’s prior titles have been saved from near oblivion. AnimeVice reports that ADV has grabbed the licenses for Grave of the Fireflies, Now and Then Here and There, World of Narue, and MD Geist (the main character of MD Geist was the “mascot” for CPM’s “US Manga Corps” line. The status of  other series such as Dominion Tank Police, Patlabor, Armored Trooper Votoms, Revolutionary Girl Utena, Project A-Ko, and Record of Lodoss War are still up in the air.I’ve contacted Funimation, Bandai, and Viz to get any contact about CPM’s demise, and any information on whether they’re considering grabbing any of CPM’s other titles. I don’t have any new information from them as yet. I must admit though, I thought Disney would have gone after Grave of the Fireflies, particularly considering their close ties with Studio Ghibli
